Was that entry submitted as a troll? With "In God We Trust" written in fine print since the phrase is a requirement.

As someone who once lived in Mississippi, I think that flag is perfectly representative of the state.

Anybody have any idea what the significance of the 19 stars is? MS is the 20th state, so it seems like a weird number to choose.
Of course, I realize I'm also foolishly assuming folks in MS can count higher than 10 (or lower, depending on how long you've worked at the sawmill).

It is based on a prominent proposal from about five years ago, that has been the main alternative proposed since then.

It had 19 small stars for the preceding states around a large star for Mississippi.

A parasite that lives off the wellbeing of others?

A bit on the nose for a red state, but it is definitely appropriate.

That flag sould be fitting for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

I think I'd happily relocate to ANY country whose flag featured an adorable flightless bird shooting lasers from its eyes.
(Who am I kidding? NZ looks beautiful anyway. I'd love to live there, regardless of which flag they chose. PLUS they have a PM who seems absolutely awesome-sauce.)
